I am beginning to admire the shorts for their tenacity in taking us down. Gone is about 50% of my saving for my daughter's future education. Gone but not forgotten. Thank you TIM for doing this to me and the rest of us. Sir you are a POS if there ever was. Please sir quit if you cannot handle or don't care or won't act etc. My daughter wants to be a teacher (a professor of Physics) so she will need atleast a Masters if not a Phd in Physics . So Mr. Tim I have invested dearly (just like all longs do) by scrapping small small amounts and investing them either director or via 401 Plan and every morning two things happen Mr. TIM (1)the sun rises (2)aapl goes down while you and the other clowns far_t their heart out.
May my hero Mr. Steve rest in peace. Wish he was alive but my hero iis gone forever. He stablized the company, give her new products, gave her honor and respect, made her profitable, give her huge cash balance etc.. So Mr. Tim either resign or (1)declare split (2)buy new company (3)declare dividend . FOR GOD'S SAKE DO SOMETHING INSTEAD OF SITTING THERE LIKE A STATIONARY ENGINE AND BLOWING A WHISTLE. BE A LOCOMOTIVE AND MOVE.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
#$%$ Are you talking about? You're the one that needs to go back to school. And for God's sake, get a money manager. You shouldn't be investing for yourself or anyone else in your family. As far as AAPL the company is fine. Let it drift down. Average down. Get off this board and go golfing.
The instituonal holders are selling appl and buying no earnings firms like amzn lnkd nflx etc the institutional holders are to blame.
Having said that every huge firm hits a big wall which i posted previously on this board.
Me too- lucky shorts
Haw can you presume that management of AAPL can be so stupid and incompetent,
and a bunch of BOD who doesn't have a clue of business.......
Still hold my shares-waiting for a class action to recover some....
Short interest in AAPL is microscopic. Nasdaq just released numbers as of 2/15 and it was about 18 million shares short. That's about 5 hours of trading volume and less than 2% of the total shares.
With such small short interest, it's not the shorts driving the stock down. The problem is longs abandoning the name. Institutions like steady top line growth, margin expansion and upside earnings surprises. AAPL has one out of three but has a shareholder base which bought expecting the company to hit on all cylinders. That shareholder base is now shrinking to fit the new reality. Quit blaming vague conspiracies ("the shorts") and take some time to understand what is REALLY driving the stock down.
I agree 100% .Doing nothng is killing this Stock. The negative sentiment will bleed into the brand itself. They have SOOOOOOOOO many ways to stop this Bleed , yet sit still as if ROME is not BURNING!
